summer is not slowing down here, things are just gearing up.
PennyRoses Yarns Luxury Summer Sock club released the first kit featuring a pattern i did for Ruth, Fata Morgana Miarge Socks and heatwave colourway yarn. its always fun to get and idea and start researching and creating. the visual anamoly caused by varying temperature layers they believe caused the stories of the flying dutchman.

Brigit has been working hard test knitting a new sock for my Flower Fairy Socks KAL
and the pattern will be out soon, featuting bavarian twisted stitches.
in 2 weeks i wil be at Stitches MidWest, booth 732.
Demoing Intwined Pattern Studio's software. The latest issue of the Knitter magazine (UK) has us featured in "things we love". so exciting!
let me know when you get a copy, i have only seen screen shots.
Leslie Wind will be sharing the booth with me. you remember her fab cable needle necklaces i blogged awhile back? she now has a cable needle ring for sock knitters so its a smaller diameter and right at you finger tips from some tricky sock designs (do you know anyone who has tricky sock designs? hmmm)
also blackthorn knitting needles! i love these have you tried them?
i cant tellyou how many DPNs i have snapped or the boys have snapped for me. these however are made from the same stuff the stealth's outer skin is made from. virtually unbreakable but stll amazingly light.
so stop by the booth and test drive them
after i come home i will be getting ready for the tour of roses trip to poland and germany. if anyone wants our fundraiser gourmet home made super yummy Strawberry Jalepeno BBQ sauce let me know i still have several jars left- $8 pints and $15 quarts.
